- Program Description
This third installment of specials hosted by Sir David Attenborough reveals that leopard society is much more complex and far less solitary than originally believed. Filmed with state-of-the-art camera equipment in the Luangua Valley in Zambia, "Leopards" observes these night stalkers around the clock, revealing the challenges and dangers faced daily by these beautiful animals. Shadowed by hungry hyenas in pursuit of leftovers and stalked by lumbering crocodiles hoping to tackle a lone leopard on a kill, how can the leopards hope to challenge such beasts?
